A Missouri Congressman has proposed a bill which would allow Pharmaceutical companies place more content online. Rep. Bill Long (R-MO) originally discovered the lack of presence on social media from these companies while working on the 21st Century Cures Act.
One of the main drivers of this Bill is to allow companies to use hyperlinks, linking users to the risks and benefits of search diseases (i.e. cancer).
